    This begs the question. Is Netflix or Hulu going to work in surround on the PC when connected to a home theater receiver as an Xbox One that also runs Netflix and Hulu which DOES surround sound? Be cool if so.

    Hi there

    All of this stuff still has to conform to the laws of physics - our ears hear ANALOG signals and so the speakers have to vibrate in such a way as to produce those analog waves .

    Now just throw up any sound wave on an "Oscilloscope" or similar device -- you'll see that it has a complex wave form which is a set of SINE WAVES.

    Now take any DIGITAL source and try and convert that into the same output that the Natural sound has.

    It's not easy -- and it's simply physics.

    Anybody who says that an original Analog system can be converted into a digital sound for recording and then converted back into a 100% replica of the original source is just PLAIN LYING -- you can't do it -- it's NOT POSSIBLE - Maths and physics prove it easily.

    You can get pretty good stuff -- and to get the ultimate quality is going to be HIDEOUSLY expensive but you can never re-create the original sound source 100% exactly from a digital transformation - especially when TWO are involved -- original recording to digital, then the sound card to decode the digital stuff back into analog for your speaker systems.

    I don't need any discussion here - it's simple MATHS 101. !!!!! As to the quality of your equipment that's another issue - but you still can't overcome basic physics -- like the speed of light can't be exceeded whatever you do.


    I agree 100% with your entire post execpt that speed of light thing.

    Sound is a bit like Wine everyone has got an opinion on what it should taste or sound like. I've tasted very expensive wine and very cheap wine, I liked the cheap wine better.
    I've got an expensive sound system, a sound bar and computer speakers, admittedly the expensive one sounds best normally, and yet I like sound of all the systems at different times, and sometimes I even like the sound of one of the cheaper systems better depending on the type of music played and the mood I'm in.
